    One of my customers wants either mulch or pinestraw around her house. When it rains the water runs off the house and she doesn't have gutters so it makes like a trench around her house. She said the water just puddles up. Which one would be better to put around the house? She has mulch in the front already but the problem is on the backside of the house. I thought I would run it by ya'll first.

    Pine Needles will hold better than a large bark type mulch in the rain.
    But the Copperheads love the needles

    Thanks, thats what I'm going to tell her that I would suggest. Every once in a while she will get me to put down some of that snake away around.
